Ducking and diving

It’s all very well winning in court – but squeezing the cash out of the guilty is another matter entirely. Far be it for Noseweek to discourage readers attempting to use the legal system, but the process is demanding and even if you get a judgment in your favour, you may still find it difficult to recover anything, especially if your opponent is someone who knows how to play the game. And if the Sheriff's controlling body shows scant interest - good luck!

The incompetence and corruption in the judiciary and its affiliated bodies is mind-boggling. I myself sent a letter to the top judge of a high court about blatant misconduct by court administrators & employees which has been going on for years and even sent him proof; three days later I am yet to hear anything from anyone. I will wait a few more days and then go to the Public Protector just to see if she's really as forthright and honest as the media would have us believe.
